This practical book is a complete guide on how to resuscitate babies at birth. Based on the consensus report of a working party drawn from the UK colleges and associations concerned with healthcare in neonates, it is authoritative and comprehensive. It is designed to help both those involved with resuscitation itself and those who are responsible for creating local policies and guidelines.

Contents include:

  • Brief physiological introduction
  • Anticipation and assessment of the need for resuscitation
  • Care of the airway, breathing and circulation
  • Positive pressure ventilation
  • External chest compression
  • Medication and fluids
  • Assessment of response to resuscitation
  • Abnormal circumstances
  • Meconium
  • Congenital anomaly
  • Prematurity
  • Communication with parents
  • Equipment checklists
  • Summary flowcharts

Illustrated with clear line drawings, Resuscitation of Babies at Birth will be an invaluable aid to all involved in care of the newborn, from paediatricians, midwives, and nurses, to emergency physicians and general practitioners.
